Love as an Influencer

Kerry's Heartfelt Pieces


Love has been the strongest of influences in Kerry Darlington's art over the years. A heartfelt approach to her work has been the backbone in creating engaging originals and editions across her collections, and collectors are accustomed to this feeling in her artwork. It stems from the bond that her characters share so dearly within her pieces, the environment for her story-line as an embracing setting and the personality of her artwork that creates affection. Indeed, Kerry Darlington continuously shows great proficiency in painting love as is seen within the acclaimed pieces, 'The Elixir of Love' and 'Romeo and Juliet', making this artwork a suitable gift beyond this attentive time of the year, for you, for him or for her.


‘The Elixir of Love’ is at the very heart of Kerry's enchanting ideology; where we are taken far away from our day to day; for this is a place where the make-believe is true and every day worries are left behind. Building upon the previous works ‘Moon Song’ and ‘Celtic Twilight’ which are comprised within the Nature’s Faeries collection.


Inspired by Shakespeare's enduring tale 'Romeo and Juliet', Darlington's adaption of this famous story offers a version not about tragedy but about love. Taking a concept founded in the famous poem by Yeats, Cloths of Heaven in which the writer is musing if he were wealthier what he would give to his lover.

Kerry's Heart-shaped Pieces

Kerry's Heartfealt Pieces


It is no coincidence that Kerry has rejuvenated her passion for heart-shaped artwork at this time of year, however these well-received heart-shaped works are suitable for a present for any occasion - Transmitting her desire for love and positivity into her artwork, Kerry has made a legacy for making appealing artwork for all kinds of collectors and all kinds of circumstances, so there is no need to think twice about treating yourself or a loved one - Just go for it!.  


'Heart of Gold' is the newest artwork coming out of the creative studio of the illustrious, Kerry Darlington. A one-off design, Kerry has been working behind the scenes on this collector's piece as the run-up to Valentines day takes pace. One does not need to look any further than the shape of the artwork to find Kerry's inspiration for her special piece - Fitting as a gift for any time of the year.


'Szerelem' is an original, hand painted heart by Kerry Darlington. This painting has been introduced as part of a redecorated Heart collection which has been uniquely formed upon board, with various textures created using acrylic gesso. The colour is built up with several transparent layers creating depth. This painting produced exclusively for the 'By The Light of The Moon' event.

Kerry's Folklore Pieces


Kerry's successful Folklore series has incorporated some of her most sought-after pieces such as Little Red Riding Hood, Beauty and The Beast, Snow White & Rose Red and The Snow Queen. The progress of this mythical collection has been nothing short of a reformation in the fairy-tale space that we see Darlington work in - such evolution has seen the quality of her work get stronger as the bar is timelessly raised, piece after piece - paving the way for eagerly anticipated compositions - Upon going through the practical stage of her Folklore pieces, Kerry ponders on the elements that would make this a match for every collector, in doing so, she continuously creates the perfect gift for everyone.


The Snow Queen is based on the folklore tale by Hans Christian Anderson in which an enchanted mirror has been cursed by an evil troll so that anyone who looks within it only sees the bad and ugliness. The antagonist tries to carry the mirror to heaven to try and bewitch the angels, but the mirror slips out of his hands and falls to earth shattering into millions of pieces. Humanity is engulfed by the dust of the mirror, and many are put into a dark spell.


Snow White & Rose Red has been one of the earlier stories that has become the touchstone of leading contemporary artist, Kerry Darlington, whose talent has transformed the black and white written word into stunning painted form. Introducing the romantic chronicles in symbolic style, the artist has handpicked single passages from the stories to frame the tender moments of solace and contemplation, which sit apart from the traditional action.

From her famous 'Peacock Splendour' and 'Peacock Feathers' editions; the King of Birds has been a suitably stately, elegant and gorgeous subject for an artist so receptive to nature, colour and cultural significance. 'Guardians' is a Boutique Edition where the Peacock takes centre stage - this is Kerry Darlington’s most opulent, ostentatious, glitteringly elegant and fun-loving work that oozes affection from every detail of the piece.

This spectacular creature is a natural choice for Kerry, embodying many of the qualities that have informed her work from the very beginning. The iridescent colours of a Peacock’s feathers become a brilliant subject to replicate via Kerry’s resin and metal-leaf technique. The bird’s famous crest and ‘eyespots’ are irresistible features to render as 3D elements and its royal charisma is instantly charming!


Kerry started her career with the ‘Tree Of Life’, originally inspired by Gustav Klimt. Periodically she has returned back to this theme with different ideas and it has been the foundation of her portfolio for many years. This edition was made using textured elements and was the first time the tree was created separately to the back-piece and has been individually inserted to each art work giving them all that sense of a personal and unique touch.


This beautiful work is made using unique silver and copper metal leafing and personally placed 3D elements on each piece: no two are alike. This original has a lot of components going on, some show the little chicks before they have been hatched and others show them as they are growing up as if to tell different parts of the same story. This enchanting Original takes us back to the style of some of Kerry's earlier works like ‘Tree Of Life’.
